When my husband was alive, we had a GSD named Tasha. Tasha LOVED her panda bear stuffed toy, but it would get really dirty and have to be washed every so often.
I was taking the laundry out of the machine in the basement, and Tasha came downstairs and looked at me with a question in her eyes. I went and opened the door to the back yard, but she refused to go out. Unable to figure out what she wanted, I shrugged and went back to loading laundry into the basket so I could take it outside and hang it on the line.
Two handfuls of laundry later, I came across Panda Bear, and immediately knew that was what she'd been wanting!
Also heard of a lady who was training for SAR with her Shiloh shepherd. They'd finished the search exercise, and their instructor told them to put their dogs away, and gather round for a discussion. Knowing her dog wouldn't leave her SUV without permission, the lady left the gate open.
Her dog threw first his water bowl, then a plastic bottle of water out of the gate.
The instructor turned to her, and said, "I think your dog is trying to tell you he's thirsty!"
